[KNOCK ON DOOR]
CHLOE: JAX?
JAX: IF YOU'RE GOING TO YELL
OUT A NAME, SHOULDN'T IT BE
YOUR HUSBAND'S?
CHLOE: I HAVE MORE IMPORTANT
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT THAN
GERTRUDE TODAY.
LIKE MY FUTURE.
IS SOMETHING WRONG?
JAX: NO, NO, NOTHING'S WRONG.
YOU KNOW, IF GERTRUDE FINDS OUT
YOUR MARRIAGE TO NED IS A FRAUD,
THEN YOU COULD BE MINUS ONE
DESIGN COMPANY.
YOU GOING TO BE OK WITH THAT?
CHLOE: THAT'S NOT
THE INCENTIVE IT ONCE WAS.
I MEAN, WHAT GOOD IS A CLOTHING
DESIGNER WHO CAN'T SEE
THE CLOTHES SHE'S DESIGNING?
JAX: WELL, IF YOU'RE GOING
TO BE NEGATIVE ABOUT IT --
CHLOE: ARE YOU GOING TO BE
ONE OF THOSE GLASS-HALF-FULL
TYPES?
JAX: NO, I'M ONE OF THOSE
GLASS-SPILLETH-OVER TYPES.
CHLOE: OH.
JAX: HI.
CHLOE: I THINK IT'S RUNNETH
OVER.
JAX: OH.
CHLOE: BUT I'LL TAKE ANY
SPILLOVER I CAN GET.
JAX: YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.
SO,
YOU'RE DRESSED.
I TAKE IT YOU'RE GOING
SOMEPLACE.
CHLOE: EXCELLENT DEDUCTION,
WATSON.
I AM GOING HOME.

NED: IT'S ALL RIGHT, NIKOLAS.
YOU CAN STOP THE HARD SELL.
ALEXIS TALKED TO ME ABOUT HIRING
YOU FOR L&B.
NIKOLAS: AND?
NED: YOU WORKED FOR KATHERINE
AT DECEPTION.
DESPITE WHAT I THOUGHT
OF HER PERSONALLY, SHE WAS DAMN
GOOD AT P.R.
SO IF SHE TAUGHT YOU EVERYTHING
SHE KNEW, THEN I SUSPECT YOU'RE
PROBABLY AS GOOD AS YOU SAY
YOU ARE.
UNFORTUNATELY, L&B IS GOING
THROUGH A TOUGH TIME RIGHT NOW,
SO I CAN'T REALLY MAKE ANY
PROMISES, ESPECIALLY ABOUT
SALARY.
NIKOLAS: NO PROBLEM.
I'LL TAKE A SMALLER SALARY
TO START AND, ONCE I PROVE
MYSELF, I'LL TAKE A CUT
OF THE PROFITS AT THE BACK END.
NED: YOU UNDERSTAND THIS JOB
ISN'T A HOBBY.
NIKOLAS: IF I'M WORKING
FOR BACK-END PROFITS,
I'LL ASSURE YOU THAT I WANT L&B
TO SUCCEED AS MUCH AS YOU DO.
NED: AND WHAT IF
THE CASSADINES NEED
YOU AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE?
NIKOLAS: I'M NOT SURPRISED
YOU'D ASKED.
YOU'RE A QUARTERMAINE.
YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO COME
FROM A POWERFUL, WEALTHY FAMILY.
ALL THOSE EXPECTATIONS THAT HAVE
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO
WITH THE WAY THAT YOU WANT
TO LIVE YOUR LIFE.
NED: SOUNDS FAMILIAR.
NIKOLAS: I'M TRYING TO BREAK
AWAY FROM THAT, TO DO SOMETHING
THAT GIVES ME SATISFACTION
AND DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME
FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF AND WHAT
I'VE ACCOMPLISHED AT THE END
OF THE DAY.
IF YOU HIRE ME,
YOU WON'T BE SORRY.
NED: ALL RIGHT.
STOP BY MY OFFICE.
WE'LL WORKOMETHING OUT.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU.
THIS WILL BE GREAT.
STEFAN: NIKOLAS.
WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE?
NIKOLAS: I CAME TO SEE A MAN
ABOUT A JOB.
AND GUESS WHAT?
I GOT IT.

LAURA: LESLEY LU,
FIVE MINUTES.
WE'RE JUST DROPPING GEORGIE OFF.
MAC: LAURA, THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR LETTING GEORGIE PLAY
WITH LULU.
SHE'S BEEN A LITTLE LONELY
LATELY.
LAURA: I TAKE IT FELICIA'S
NOT BACK YET?
MAC: I TAKE IT LUKE ISN'T,
EITHER.
WELL, I GUESS IT'S PRETTY
OBVIOUS -- LUKE AND FELICIA WENT
OFF TOGETHER.

FELICIA: WE DID IT.
WE REALLY DID IT.
LUKE: YOU HAD DOUBTS?
FELICIA: WELL, HOW COULD
I NOT?
THIS IS SWISS BANKERS.
SECURITY IS PRACTICALLY
A RELIGION FOR THEM.
LUKE: NO, DARLING, MONEY IS
THEIR RELIGION.
AND YOU CONVINCED THEM YOU WERE
ROLLING IN IT.
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO
AN ECCENTRIC ENGLISH HEIRESS?
FELICIA: LIKE A MILLION
POUNDS, MY GOOD MAN.
LUKE: I KNEW THEY'D BEND OVER
BACKWARDS TO GET AHOLD
OF YOUR ASSETS.
SO WHEN YOU ASKED THEM TO SEE
THE SECURITY CODE, I KNEW
WE WERE IN BUSINESS.
AIN'T THE MODERN AGE WONDERFUL?
FELICIA YES.
IT'S ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.
IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE THAT ALL
THE MONEY THAT STEFAN CASSADINE
MADE IN THE YEAR IS ON THAT
TEENY, TINY, LITTLE DISK.
LUKE: YOU KNOW, THAT OLD
BERNSTEIN AND WOODWARD ADAGE --
FOLLOW THE MONEY.
THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO.
AND I WOULD BELAY MY MONEY
ON A TRAIL LEADING RIGHT
TO LUCKY.

LAURA: I HAVEN'T HEARD
FROM LUKE IN DAYS.
I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT'S
GOING ON.
MAC: LUKE AND FELICIA BOTH
TOOK OFF AT THE SAME TIME.
I MEAN, FELICIA'S SUPPOSEDLY
WORKING ON LILA'S MEMOIRS.
BUT, YOU SEE, THAT'S JUST CODE
SPEAK FOR BEING WITH LUKE.
I'VE LEARNED THAT ONE ALL TOO
WELL.
LAURA: MAC, MAYBE THEY HAVE
A GOOD REASON.
I KNOW THAT FELICIA LOVES YOU.
I DON'T THINK THAT SHE WOULD
DELIBERATELY JEOPARDIZE
YOUR FAMILY.
MAC: I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE
SAYING, LAURA.
I JUST WISH I WAS HEARING IT
FROM FELICIA INSTEAD.
LAURA: I KNOW.
AND YOU WILL, I THINK,
WHEN SHE COMES BACK.
MAC: WHAT ABOUT YOU?
DOES IT BOTHER YOU THAT LUKE
AND FELICIA ARE TOGETHER?
LAURA: YOU KNOW,
WE'RE SEPARATED, WE'RE GETTING
A DIVORCE.
HE CAN DO WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.
MAC: SURE ABOUT THAT?
LAURA: I'M RUNNING LATE.
I SHOULD BE GOING.
I'LL GO GET MY DAUGHTER.
MAC: OK.

STEFAN: NIKOLAS, YOU ALREADY
HAVE A JOB.
AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT ONE.
DO YOU INTEND TO NEGLECT
YOUR DUTIES TO THE FAMILY?
NIKOLAS: MY DUTIES HAVEN'T
STARTED YET.
STEFAN: YOU HAVE TO BE
TRAINED TO HANDLE THE
RESPONSIBILITY FIRST.
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU KNOW,
I DON'T THINK THAT I WANT
THE RESPONSIBILITY.
YOU HAVE RUN THE FAMILY HOLDINGS
FOR YEARS AND YOU HAVE BEEN
GREAT AT IT.
IF IT'S NOT BROKEN, WHY FIX IT?
STEFAN: THAT IS NOT
THE POINT.
YOU ARE THE HEIR AND IT'S TIME
YOU START BEHAVING AS SUCH.
NIKOLAS: I DON'T TAKE CONTROL
OF MY INHERITANCE UNTIL I'M 25.
SO UNTIL THEN, THERE'S NO REASON
THAT I CAN'T HAVE A LIFE OUTSIDE
OF MY SO-CALLED DUTIES.
I LIKE WORKING IN P.R.
AND I KNOW THAT I CAN DO GREAT
THINGS FOR L&B.
I THINK I DESERVE A SHOT.
STEFAN: I DON'T HAVE TIME
TO DISCUSS THIS RIGHT NOW,
NIKOLAS.
I AM TRAVELING TO NOVA SCOTIA
TODAY.
WE WILL TALK ABOUT THIS FURTHER
WHEN I RETURN.
NIKOLAS: FINE.
BUT I WON'T FEEL DIFFERENTLY.

JAX: WELL, THAT'S TERRIFIC.
WHEN DID TONY SAY YOU COULD GO
HOME?
CHLOE: WELL, ACTUALLY,
HE DIDN'T.
I'M TELLING HIM.
JAX: WELL, GOOD FOR YOU.
CHLOE: WHEN I WOKE UP THIS
MORNING, I REALIZED THAT
I COULDN'T BE COOPED UP IN THIS
PLACE FOR ONE MORE DAY,
NOT AFTER YOU TOOK ME
TO THE PARK AND MADE ME REMEMBER
ALL THE THINGS THAT --
THE WONDERFUL THINGS THAT I'VE
BEEN MISSING.
JAX, WHATEVER MY LIFE
IS GOING TO BE,
I'M NOT GOING TO BE
SCARED AND I --
I HAVE TO GET ON WITH IT.
JAX: AND YOU WON'T BE ALONE.
I WILL BE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY.
STARTING NOW.
OK?
CHLOE: WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
JAX?
HEY. JAX --
JAX: YOU MISSED A BUTTON.
CHLOE: WELL, I DID THAT
ON PURPOSE SO I COULD FEEL
YOUR HANDS ON ME WHEN
YOU FIXED IT.
JAX: REALLY?
CAN YOU FEEL THAT?
CHLOE: YES.
JAX: WHAT ABOUT THIS?

AMY: CAN I HELP YOU?
GERTRUDE: WELL, I'M HERE
TO SEE MY NIECE, CHLOE ASHTON.

AMY: THIS ISN'T A GOOD TIME
TO VISIT YOUR NIECE.
GERTRUDE: ISN'T CHLOE ALLOWED
VISITORS?
AMY: UM, YEAH, WELL -- RIGHT
NOW MR. JACKS IS IN WITH HER,
AND I WAS GOING TO ASK HIM
TO LEAVE BECAUSE DR. JONES IS
COMING IN TO EXAMINE HER.
GERTRUDE: MR. JACKS IS
IN THERE?
AMY: UH-HUH.
GERTRUDE: WHERE IS CHL'S
HUSBAND?
AMY: I DON'T KNOW, BUT I HAVE
TO ASK YOU TO LEAVE
BECAUSE THERE'S DR. JONES.
TONY: AMY.
CHLOE: COME IN.
TONY: HI THERE.
YOU LOOK NICE.
IS JAX TAKING YOU OUT AGAIN?
CHLOE: IN A WAY.
I'VE ASKED HIM TO TAKE ME HOME.
FOR GOOD.

EDWARD: HELLO, NED.
YOU KNOW, IF YOU CAME BACK
TO E.L.Q., YOU COULD HAVE
YOUR OWN OFFICE.
YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO HANG OUT
HERE TO DO YOUR PAPERWORK.
NED: AND HELLO TO YOU, TOO.
EDWARD: OR ARE YOU JUST USING
THIS PLACE TO AVOID TAKING
MY PHONE CALLS?
NED: OH, WAS THAT YOU LEAVING
MESSAGES FOR ME ALL OVER TOWN?
EDWARD: DON'T PLAY COY
WITH ME.
YOU KNOW DAMN WELL I'VE BEEN
TRYING TO REACH YOU.
NED: YOU KNOW DAMN WELL THAT
MY WIFE IS IN THE HOSPITAL
TRYING TO REGAIN HER SIGHT.
I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN
TO ASK HOW HIGH WHEN YOU SAY
"JUMP."
EDWARD: HOW DID YOU KNOW
I WAS GOING TO ASK YOU TO JUMP?
NED: BECAUSE YOU'RE THROWING
A PARTY TO CELEBRATE A.J.'S
LATEST PROGENY, AND YOU WANT ME
TO ATTEND.
EDWARD: NOT ANYMORE.
NED: WHAT HAPPENED?
CARLY?
THE BABY?
EDWARD: OH, CARLY
AND HER UNBORN CHILD ARE BOTH
FINE AS FAR AS I KNOW.
NED: WELL, THEN WHY AREN'T
YOU HAPPY THAT ANOTHER
QUARTERMAINE GREAT-GRANDCHILD IS
ON ITS WAY?
EDWARD: BECAUSE THE BABY
ISN'T A.J.'S.
IT'S SONNY CORINTHOS'.
HE PLANS TO RAISE THE CHILD
AS HIS OWN.
NED: I KNOW JUNIOR IS WILLING
TO DO ANYTHING TO PLEASE YOU.
BUT STAYING MARRIED TO A WOMAN
WHO'S CARRYING ANOTHER MAN'S
CHILD IS ABSURD, EVEN FOR HIM.
EDWARD: BUT HE KNOWS HOW HIGH
THE STAKES ARE.
IF CARLY LEAVES, SHE WILL TAKE
MICHAEL WITH HER.
AND WITH SONNY'S HELP, SHE COULD
GET A COURT ORDER AND GET
PARTIAL CUSTODY.
NED: YOU THINK SHE'D RUN
TO SONNY?
EDWARD: I THINK SHE'D DO
ANYTHING TO KEEP LITTLE MICHAEL.
AND I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE
MY GREAT-GRANDCHILD RAISED
BY THAT -- THAT HOOLIGAN.
NOT TO MENTION THE PUBLIC
SCANDAL OF IT ALL.
NED: SO WHAT DOES CARLY SAY
ABOUT ALL THIS?
EDWARD: SHE WAS SO TERRIFIED
AT LOSING MICHAEL THAT SHE TRIED
TO PASS SONNY'S BABY OFF
AS BEING A.J.'S, AND THAT'S
WHERE WE HAVE THE ADVANTAGE.
I THINK --
NED: HAVE YOU THOUGHT THIS
THROUGH?
I MEAN, OF WHAT YOU'D ALL BE
GOING THROUGH TO RAISE SONNY'S
CHILD?

A.J.: I SEE GRANDFATHER'S
ALREADY TOLD YOU THE NEWS.
YOU MUST BE LOVING THIS.
LAURA: WELL, CONGRATULATIONS,
NIKOLAS.
THAT IS WONDERFUL NEWS.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU,
THANK YOU.
I WASN'T SURE HOW YOU'D FEEL
ABOUT IT.
LAURA: ARE YOU KIDDING?
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LIKE WORKING
IN PUBLIC RELATIONS, AND NOW
YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO SHOW
EVERYONE HOW GOOD YOU ARE.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, WELL,
I WISH STEFAN FELT THAT WAY.
LAURA: HE DIDN'T APPROVE?
NIKOLAS: WELL, HE THINKS THAT
I'M AVOIDING MY RESPONSIBILITY
TO THE FAMILY.
LAURA: OH, GIVE HIM TIME.
HE'LL COME AROUND.
NIKOLAS: SEE, THAT'S JUST IT.
I MEAN, IT'S LIKE ONE MINUTE
HE TELLS ME I'M FREE, YOU KNOW,
TO BE WHO I WANT, TO DO WHAT
I WANT.
AND THEN THE NEXT MINUTE,
HE'S -- HE'S CHOKING ME
WITH THE CASSADINE LEGACY.
LAURA: WELL, YOU KNOW HOW
HE IS.
HE JUST NEEDS A LITTLE TIME
TO GET USED TO THE IDEA.
NIKOLAS: NO, THE CASSADINE
DYNASTY COMES FIRST WITH HIM.
NO, NO, IT'S -- IT'S TRUE.
IT'S TRUE, WHICH, ACTUALLY,
IS -- IS PRETTY AMAZING
CONSIDERING ALL THE TERRIBLE
THINGS OUR FAMILY HAS DONE
TO ONE ANOTHER OVER THE YEARS.
LAURA: I THINK THAT STEFAN IS
MUCH MORE OPEN TO CHANGE THAN
YOU REALIZE.

STEFAN: IS EVERYTHING
IN PLACE?
YES.
REMEMBER, PROCEED WITH EXTREME
CAUTION.
I'LL CALL YOU WHEN I'M READY
TO DEPART.
HELENA: WELL.
STEFAN: MOTHER.
I WAS HOPING YOUR ABSENCE WAS
OF A MORE PERMANENT NATURE.
HELENA: OH, YOU SHOULD KNOW
BY NOW THAT I HAVE NO INTENTION
OF EVER ABANDONING MY GRANDSON,
ESPECIALLY WHEN HE'S AT SUCH
RISK FROM HIS SUPPOSEDLY LOVING
UNCLE.
WE BOTH KNOW THAT YOU'RE
DETERMINED TO TAKE CONTROL
OF NIKOLAS' LEGACY.
STEFAN: THINK WHATEVER
YOU LIKE.
HELENA: STEFAN,
ARE YOU ATTEMPTING TO KEEP
SOMETHING FROM ME?

FELICIA: DID YOU FIND
ANYTHING YET?
LUKE: HMM.
FELICIA: OH. YOUR COMPUTER
SKILLS, THEY ARE SO AMAZING.
HOW DID YOU KNOW JUST TO DO
THAT?
LUKE: MY SON TAUGHT ME
EVERYTHING I KNOW
ABOUT EVERYTHING.
THIS PARTICULAR SKILL MIGHT JUST
SAVE HIS LIFE.
FELICIA: YOU'LL GET TO TELL
HIM THAT SOON, I HOPE.
LUKE: YEAH, ME, TOO.
FELICIA: I THINK MY GIRLS ARE
HOME FROM SCHOOL RIGHT NOW.
MAYBE I'LL GIVE THEM A CALL.
LUKE: OK.
FELICIA: YEAH.
LET'S SEE.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
MAXIE: SCORPIO RESIDENCE.
FELICIA: MAXIE, HELLO.
MAXIE: MOM -- HOW ARE YOU?
FELICIA: I'M -- I'M FINE.
I'M HARD AT WORK ON MY RESEARCH.
GEORGIE: HOW LONG DOES
RESEARCH TAKE?
FELICIA: OH, NOT TOO MUCH
LONGER.
OH, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU.
GEORGIE: I MISS YOU.
FELICIA: AW, I MISS YOU,
TOO, SWEETHEART.
MAXIE: IT'S MOM.
MAC: IT'S MOM?
HEY, DON'T YOU GUYS -- HERE,
TAKE YOUR BOOKS, TAKE
YOUR HOMEWORK AND GO
ON UPSTAIRS.
FINISH IT ALL UP THERE, OK?
GO ON NOW.
SEE YOU IN A BIT.
MAXIE: BYE, MOM. BYE.
GEORGIE: BYE, MOM, LOVE YOU!
MAC: FELICIA?
FELICIA: HI, MAC.
MAC: SO, HOW'S LUKE?
FELICIA: I -- I KNOW WE HAVE
SOME THINGS THAT WE HAVE
TO DISCUSS.
MAC: WE CAN'T DISCUSS THIS
ON THE PHONE, FELICIA.
YOU HAVE TO COME HOME NOW.
FELICIA: I CAN'T DO THAT,
MAC.
MAC: WHY NOT?
FELICIA: I CAN'T EXPLAIN THAT
RIGHT NOW, BUT I HAVE A VERY
GOOD REASON.
MAC: THE GIRLS MISS YOU.
FELICIA: AND I MISS THEM.
AND I MISS YOU, AND I LOVE YOU.
MAC: DON'T TELL ME, FELICIA.
SHOW ME.
COME HOME NOW.
FELICIA: I CAN'T.
YOU JUST HAVE TO GIVE ME
A LITTLE MORE TIME.
MAC: NOW LET ME GET THIS
STRAIGHT.
I ASKED YOU TO COME HOME,
AND YOUR ANSWER IS NO.
DOES THAT ABOUT COVER IT?
FELICIA: OH, MAC. MAC:
I WILL TELL THE GIRLS THAT
YOU'LL CALL THEM TOMORROW.
FELICIA: MAC --
MAC?
LUKE: SO,
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO NOW?

NIKOS: HMM -- IT'S HOT.
SO STEFAN'S BUILDING
YOU A HOUSE.
LAURA: MM-HMM.
AWAY FROM WYNDEMERE,
AWAY FROM EVERYTHING CASSADINE.
NIKOLAS: DOES THIS MEAN
YOU TWO ARE GETTING MARRIED?
LAURA: I DON'T KNOW, NIKOLAS.
NIKOLAS: HAS HE ASKED?
LAURA: SORT OF.
I -- YOU KNOW, I'M JUST -- I'M
NOT READY TO REMARRY JUST YET.
BUT ANYWAY, THAT'S NOT WHY
I TOLD YOU ABOUT THE HOUSE.
I WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT HE IS
NOT AS TIED TO T CASSADINES
AND THEIR TRADITIONS
AS YOU THINK.
NIKOLAS: YOU MEAN
BECAUSE HE'S GOING OUT
ON HIS OWN, HE'LL ALLOW ME TO DO
THE SAME THING?
LAURA: EXACTLY.
JUST GIVE HIM TIME.
NIKOLAS: ALL RIGHT,
WELL, HE'LL HAVE A COUPLE
OF DAYS.
HE SAID HE HAS BUSINESS
IN NOVA SCOTIA, SO --
LAURA: WELL, WHEN HE RETURNS,
JUST BE HONEST WITH HIM.
AND I THINK EVENTUALLY HE'S
GOING TO HAVE TO REALIZE THAT
YOU NEED TO LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE.

STEFAN: THERE'S THAT PARANOIA
AGAIN.
HELENA: OH, IT ISN'T PARANOIA
WHEN SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY
STABBING YOU IN THE BACK.
YOU'RE FAR TOO PLEASED
WITH YOURSELF, STEFAN.
OR PERHAPS IT'S SIMPLY ROMANTIC
DELUSION GLEAMING FROM
YOUR EYES.
I'VE HEARD ABOUT THE DREAM HOUSE
THAT YOU'RE BUILDING
FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR LADY LOVE,
YOUR BROTHER'S WIDOW.
WHAT A PATHETICALLY JUVENILE
FANTASY -- TO THINK THAT
YOU AND LAURA COULD EVER BUILD
A FUTURE ON THE LIVES YOU'VE
DESTROYED.
STEFAN: EXCUSE ME.

A.J.: YOU COULDN'T WAIT
TO TELL HIM, COULD YOU?
EDWARD: A.J., NED IS FAMILY.
AND HE NEEDS TO BE INVOLVED
IN ALL OF ITS ASPECTS.
AND BESIDES, I TRUST
HIS JUDGMENT.
AND I SUGGEST THAT YOU LISTEN
TO WHAT HE HAS TO SAY ABOUT
THIS.
I HAVE THINGS TO DO.
A.J.: WELL,
I GUESS YOU WERE RIGHT,
YOU KNOW -- IT WAS ONLY A MATTER
OF TIME BEFORE GRANDFATHER
TURNED TO YOU.
NED: THERE'S THAT OLD
FAMILIAR RING OF SELF-PITY.
NOT THAT YOU DON'T HAVE GOOD
REASON.
JUST DO ME A FAVOR.
WHEN YOU CRASH AND BURN, JUST DO
IT NOW SO WE CAN MINIMIZE
THE DAMAGE.
A.J.: I HAVE NO INTENTION
OF LOSING MY JOB OR MY SON.
AND I WILL REMAIN MARRIED
TO CARLY.
NED: AND SONNY'S CHILD?
A.J.: HE WILL NEVER HAVE
TO SEE ITS FATHER.
NED: HMM. HELL OF A PLAN.
JUST ONE MAJOR FLAW, HOWEVER.
YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE IT
THROUGH, BECAUSE SOON YOU'LL
START FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF
AND TH IT WILL ONLY BE
A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE
YOU START DRINKING AGAIN.
A.J.: THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
NED: WELL, IT'S YOUR LIFE.
RUIN IT ANY WAY YOU WANT.
WAITER: WOULD YOU LIKE
SOMETHING FROM THE BAR?
A.J.: YEAH.
CLUB SODA.
WAITER: SURE.

MAC: YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO BREAK
LAND SPEED RECORDS GETTING HERE.
KEVIN: YOU SOUNDED LIKE HELL
ON THE PHONE.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HOME
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY ANYWAY?
MAC: SOMEONE'S GOT TO BE HERE
WHEN THE GIRLS GET HOME
FROM SCHOOL.
KEVIN: WHERE'S FELICIA?
MAC: SHE'S BUSY -- HAVING
AN AFFAIR WITH LUKE SPENCER.

CHLOE: SO WHAT'S THE VERDICT.
TONY: IF YOU WANT TO GO HOME,
I'M NOT GOING TO TRY
TO STOP YOU.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
TONY: HOWEVER, THE SWELLING
HASN'T ALL GONE DOWN YET,
SO IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT
YOU REST A LOT.
AND IT'S CRITICAL THAT YOU COME
BACK TO THE HOSPITAL
FOR CHECKUPS.
CHLOE: NO PROBLEM.
ANYTHING ELSE?
TONY: YOU WILL BE IN TOUCH
WITH THE REHAB CENTER.
THEY'LL SET UP SOME LESSONS
FOR YOU TO TEACH YOU HOW TO GET
AROUND YOUR HOME, TO COOK
FOR YOURSELF, TO DRESS,
TO BATHE.
JAX: SO, HOW DO WE GET
IN TOUCH?
TONY: UM, ACTUALLY,
HERE'S A CARD FOR YOU
FOR THE REHAB.
AND THEY'RE EXPECTING A CALL.
AND IF AND WHEN THE TIME COMES,
WE'LL DISCUSS THE PROS AND CONS
OF SURGERY.
JAX: BUT THERE'S STILL A GOOD
CHANCE THAT CHLOE'S SIGHT WILL
RETURN ON HER OWN, RIGHT?
TONY: THERE'S A CHANCE,
BUT I CAN'T MAKE THAT GUARANTEE,
CHLOE.
I'M SORRY.
CHLOE: ONE DAY AT A TIME,
RIGHT?
TONY: THAT'S RIGHT.
I'LL SEE YOU.
JAX: THANKS.
CHLOE: WHEN YOU CAN'T SEE,
YOU REALLY --
YOU LISTEN TO WHAT PEOPLE ARE
SAYING -- NOT WITH WORDS
BUT WITH THEIR TONE.
JAX: HEY, IT'S OK.
IT'S GOING TO BE OK.
CHLOE: TONY'S VOICE JUST
NOW -- HE MADE IT SOUND LIKE
THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT'S GOING
TO GET.
LIKE I'M NOT GOING TO SEE AGAIN.
JAX: HEY.
JAX: IT'LL BE OK.

JAX: LISTEN, CHLOE.
LISTEN, YOU WILL SEE AGAIN.
YOU JUST HAVE TO GIVE YOUR BODY
TIME TO HEAL, OK?
CHLOE: I WAS JUST SO FOCUSED
ON GETTING OUT OF HERE THAT
I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT WHAT THAT
REALLY MEANT.
JAX: DOES THE REHAB
SCARE YOU?
CHLOE: IT JUST SURPRISED ME.
I WON'T BE ABLE TO GO BACK
TO MY OLD LIFE.
JAX: THINGS WILL BE
DIFFERENT.
IT'LL BE A CHALLENGE.
BUT I HAPPEN TO KNOW THAT
YOU ARE TERRIFIC AT CHALLENGES.
CHLOE: I WAS
INDEPENDENT, JAX.
I DID SOMETHING I LOVED
AND I WAS GOOD AT IT.
AND NOW I CAN'T DO THAT ANYMORE.
JAX: YOU DON'T KNOW THAT.
CHLOE: NO, JAX, YOU ARE
THE MOST WONDERFUL THING THAT
HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME,
BUT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT I DO
KN.
I WON'T BE ABLE TO DRAW
THE DESIGNS THAT ARE IN MY HEAD.
AND I WON'T BE ABLE
TO LOOK IN THE EYES
OF THE PEOPLE THAT I LOVE.
JAX: HEY, HEY, YOU DON'T
ALWAYS HAVE TO SEE LOVE
AS LONG AS YOU CAN FEEL IT.
CHLOE: I'M SCARED, JAX.
I'M JUST
REALLY SCARED.

LAURA: WELL, THIS MUST BE
MY DAY FOR SEEING FAMILY.
NIKOLAS WAS JUST HERE.
STEFAN: WELL, I AM SO GLAD
THAT YOU CONSIDER ME FAMILY.
LAURA: OF COURSE I DO.
I HEARD THAT YOU SAW HIM
AT THE GRILL.
STEFAN: YES.
HE HAD SOME RATHER DISTURBING
NEWS.
LAURA: THE JOB AT
L&B RECORDS?
I THINK THAT'S WONDERFUL.
STEFAN: I DON'T SHARE
YOUR ENTHUSIASM.
LAURA: HE WANTS TO DO
SOMETHING FOR HIMSELF.
HE'S INTERESTED IN THE FIELD
OF PUBLIC RELATIONS.
WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE HAPPY
FOR HIM?
STEFAN: LISTEN, LISTEN,
I DON'T WANT TO ARGUE ABOUT THIS
WITH YOU.
I HAVE TOO LITTLE TIME
WITH YOU AS IT IS.
LAURA: HE TOLD ME YOU WERE
GOING AWAY ON ANOTHER BUSINESS
TRIP.
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE GONE?
STEFAN: I'M NOT SURE.
BUT HELENA IS BACK IN TOWN,
AND THE SOONER I WRAP THIS UP,
THE BETTER IT WILL BE FOR ALL
OF US.
LAURA: I TOLD HIM ABOUT
THE HOUSE YOU WERE BUILDING
FOR US.
STEFAN: OH.
SO YOU'VE GIVEN SOME THOUGHT
TO MY PROPOSAL.
LAURA: I CAN'T THINK
OF ANYTHING ELSE.
STEFAN: ALL RIGHT.
TAKE YOUR TIME.
YOU'RE WORTH WAITING FOR.
I SHOULD KNOW.

MAC: I KEEP GOING OVER IT
AND OVER IT IN MY MIND.
I DON'T KNOW WHY I DIDN'T SEE IT
COMING.
WAS I THAT BLIND?
THAT COMPLACENT?
IS THAT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE
GET MARRIED?
YOU KNOW, DO YOU JUST BECOME
OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT'S GOING
ON WITH YOUR PARTNER?
IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.
KEVIN: LISTEN, I -- I'M
COMING IN HALFWAY THROUGH HERE.
COULD YOU START FROM
THE BEGINNING?
MAC: THE BEGINNING?
THE BEGINNING.
WELL, I GUESS IN THIS HOUSE THAT
WOULD BE LILA QUARTERMAINE'S
MEMOIRS.
BUT -- NO, BUT THE BEGINNING --
THE BEGINNING REALLY IS WHEN
LUCKY SPENCER DIED AND LUKE
AND LAURA BASICALLY SPLIT UP.
YOU SEE, BECAUSE THAT LEFT POOR
LUKE ALL ALONE IN THE WORLD --
HURTING, VULNERABLE, YOU KNOW,
LIKE SOME POOR, PATHETIC ANIMAL
THAT MY WIFE FELT COMPELLED
TO HELP.
ANYWAY, I WAS WORKING
AT THE STATION.
SHE WAS WORKING ON HER MEMOIRS.
AND SHE COMES ACROSS SOMETHING
MYSTERIOUS IN LILA'S PAST.
AND THAT'S WHEN SPENCER WAS
BROUGHT ONBOARD, YOU SEE?
BUT TO HELP HIM -- NOW, TO HELP
HIM WITH HIS DEEP-SEATED PAIN.
KEVIN: WELL, IN ALL FAIRNESS
TO LUKE, LOSING A SON --
MAC: I DON'T WANT TO BE FAIR
TO LUKE SPENCER, KEVIN.
I WAS FAIR TO LUKE, AND YOU KNOW
HOW HE REPAID ME?
BY STEALING MY WIFE.
I DIDN'T OBJECT TO FELICIA USING
THE BOOK AS A WAY TO DISTRACT
LUKE FROM HIS LOSS.
I FELT BAD ABOUT LUCKY, TOO.
I WAS GLAD SHE WAS ABLE TO HELP
THIS GUY, YOU KNOW,
UNTIL -- UNTIL HE NEARLY GOT
HER KILLED.
KEVIN: THE QUARTERMAINE
CRYPT.
MAC: YEAH, THE QUARTERMAINE
CRYPT, YEAH.
THEY WERE TRAPPED IN THERE
TOGETHER.
THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING
TO DIE.
OH, THAT HAPPENS A LOT TO THEM.
ANYWAY, WHEN I FINALLY FOUND
THEM, SOMETHING WAS DIFFERENT,
KEVIN.
NOW, I DIDN'T PICK UP ON IT
AT THE TIME.
BOY, NOW THAT I LOOK
BACK ON IT --
GUESS IT'S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY
ABOUT HINDSIGHT.
ANYWAY, FROM THERE, THINGS JUST
ESCALATED.
SHE COULDN'T STAY AWAY
FROM THE GUY.
THE NEXT THING I KNEW, THEY TOOK
OFF TO MEXICO LOOKING
FOR FAISON, EXCEPT I DIDN'T EVEN
KNOW ABOUT IT BECAUSE YOU KNOW
WHY?
BECAUSE FELICIA LIED TO ME.
SHE FLAT-OUT LIED TO ME.
"MORE RESEARCH."
THIS BOOK.
KEVIN: OK, I CAN CERTAINLY
UNDERSTAND WHY YOU'D BE ANGRY
AND SUSPICIOUS, BUT I STILL
HAVEN'T HEARD ANY CONCRETE
EVIDENCE THAT FELICIA HAD
AN AFFAIR.
AND, FRANKLY, IF I DID SEE SOME,
I'D HAVE A HARD TIME
BELIEVING IT.
I'VE KNOWN YOU AND FELICIA
FOR A LONG TIME.
I'VE SEEN YOU GO THROUGH UPS
AND DOWNS AND GO THE DISTANCE.
AND, FRANKLY,
I THINK THAT'S WHY YOU CALLED
ME -- BECAUSE YOU'RE LOOKING
FOR AFFIRMATION.
WELL, HERE IT IS, MAC.
FELICIA LOVES YOU.
ALL THE APPEARANCES
TO THE CONTRARY NOTWITHSTANDING,
THERE HAS TO BE SOME OTHER
EXPLANATION.
MAC: WELL, BUDDY,
THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT.
YOU SEE, THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.
BUT FAISON --
BOY, YOU REALLY GOT TO HAND IT
TO THAT CREEP, BECAUSE, YOU SEE,
HE WAS OBSERVANT.
IN FACT, I THINK IT'S SAFE
TO SAY THAT HE SAW EVERYTHING
VERY CLEARLY.
YOU SEE, HE SAW WHAT WAS GOING
ON RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES,
KEVIN, AND HE WANTED TO MAKE
DAMN SURE THAT I SAW, TOO.
SO HE SENT ME A TAPE,
A VIDEOTAPE, OF THAT CONCRETE
PROOF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
A VIDEOTAPE OF LUKE SPENCER
AND MY WIFE MAKING LOVE.

FELICIA: I CAN'T GO HOME
TO MAC NOW BECAUSE NO ONE CAN
KNOW ABOUT LUCKY.
AND IF I DO GO HOME,
I'LL HAVE TO LIE TO HIM.
AND IF I LIE TO HIM, THAT WILL
DESTROY OUR MARRIAGE FOR SURE.
LUKE: TOTALLY YOUR CALL.
FELICIA: WELL, I HAVE DECIDED
TO GO HOME WITH YOU
AND WITH LUCKY, AND I'M SURE MAC
WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I PUT HIM
THROUGH THIS.
LUKE: YOU'RE AN INCREDIBLY
STUBBORN WOMAN, ORPHEY GOODLOVE.
YOU KNOW THAT?
FELICIA: IT'S MY BEST
QUALITY.
LUKE: OH, I WOULDN'T SAY IT'S
YOUR BEST.
YOU HAVE SOME VERY FINE
QUALITIES.

LAURA: CAN I CALL YOU?
STEFAN: WELL, UNFORTUNATELY,
I'LL BE ON THE MOVE
AND DIFFICULT TO REACH.
BUT I WILL CALL YOU.
LAURA: OK.
I DO WORRY, YOU KNOW.
STEFAN: DON'T WORRY.
JUST MISS ME.
LAURA: I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT
I WILL.
BE CAREFUL.
STEFAN: REMEMBER SOMETHING,
LAURA -- ALL I WANT IS
FOR YOU TO BE HAPPY.
LAURA: I KNOW.

JAX: YEAH. RIGHT THERE.
CHLOE: I DON'T KNOW WHAT
HAPPENED TO ME THERE.
I WAS SO POSITIVE AND THEN --
AND THEN THE NEXT MINUTE, I WAS
SPOUTING LIKE A WATERFALL.
JAX: WELL,
YOU'VE BEEN IN THIS HOSPITAL
FOR SO LONG.
I'LL -- I'LL GO CHECK,
SEE WHAT'S TAKING SO LONG
WITH THE RELEASE, OK?
BE RIGHT BACK.
CHLOE: OK.
CHLOE: DAMN IT.
OH, JAX.
NED: IT'S ONLY ME.
DISAPPOINTED?
CHLOE: NEVER.
NED: DR. TONY, HE SAID YOU'RE
READY TO COME HOME TODAY.
ARE YOU?
CHLOE: I WAS SHAKY THERE
FOR A MOMENT OR TWO.
NED: YOU KNOW, THIS ISN'T
A RACE.
CHLOE: I KNOW.
NED: THIS IS YOUR LIFE WE'RE
TALKING ABOUT.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO IMPRESS ANYONE
BY BEING SUPERWOMAN.
I ALREADY THINK YOU'RE PRETTY
IMPRESSIVE.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
I NEEDED TO HEAR THAT.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
JAX: YOUR CHARIOT AWAITS.
AMY: HEY, CHLOE, I'VE GOT
YOUR WHEELCHAIR RIGHT HERE.
CHLOE: OH, THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
I DON'T -- I DON'T NEED
A WHEELCHAIR.
I HAVE TWO HANDSOME MEN
TO ESCORT ME OUT.
AMY: WELL, IT'S HOSPITAL
REGULATIONS, BUT I GUESS
THEY CAN BOTH PUSH.
JAX: OH, I LIKE THE SOUND
OF THAT.
NED: ESPECIALLY THE HANDSOME
PART.
JAX: ALL RIGHT.
COME ON, LET'S GET YOU UP.
TURN AROUND.
HERE WE GO.
ALL RIGHT, THERE.

KEVIN: OK. THE TAPE.
WHAT DID FELICIA SAY ABOUT IT?
MAC: SHE DOESN'T KNOW I'VE
SEEN IT.
KEVIN: YOU DIDN'T MENTION IT
TO HER?
MAC: I WAS HOPING SHE'D
MENTION IT TO ME, KEVIN --
YOU KNOW, THAT MY WIFE WOULD SEE
FIT TO TELL ME THAT SHE'S
ROLLING AROUND WITH LUKE
SPENCER.
KEVIN: I'M SORRY, MAC.
I JUST FIND THAT HARD
TO BELIEVE.
MAC: I KNOW WHAT I SAW.
KEVIN: I'SURE YOU DID,
BUT YOU JUST SAY IT WITH SO MUCH
CERTAINTY LIKE THERE'S NO ROOM
FOR DOUBT.
EVERYTHING YOU'VE TOLD ME ABOUT
FAISON TELLS ME THAT HE'S
EXACTLY THE KIND OF MAN WHO
WOULD MANUFACTURE A TAPE,
ESPECIALLY IF IT HURT YOU.
MAC: THE TAPE IS NOT
MANUFACTURED.
I SENT IT TO THE POLICE LAB
LOOKING FOR EDITS.
THE TAPE IS CLEAN.
KEVIN: BUT YOU DIDN'T
ASK HER.
MAC: I ASKED HER AGAIN
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN IF THERE WAS
ANYTHING ELSE SHE WANTED
TO TELL ME.
YOU KNOW, I GAVE HER EVERY
OPPORTUNITY.
KEVIN: SO IN OTHER WORDS,
YOU DID EVERYTHING BUT ASK
HER IF SHE WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR.
MAC: THAT'S RIGHT,
KEVIN, AND DO YOU KNOW WHY?
I MEAN, MAYBE I AM JUST
AN OLD-FASHIONED THROWBACK,
BUT I EXPECT HONESTY
FROM MY WIFE
BECAUSE THEN THAT'S SOMETHING
WE CAN FIX.
IT'S OUR PROBLEM.
IF IT'S HER DIRTY LITTLE SECRET,
WE'RE IN TROUBLE.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT, KEVIN?
FRANKLY, I'M -- I DIDN'T INVITE
YOU OVER HERE TO LISTEN
TO YOU DEFEND FELICIA.
KEVIN: I'M SORRY IF IT SOUNDS
LIKE THAT.
IT'S JUST THAT --
MAC, I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU ARE.
NOT IN THE SPECIFICS,
BUT I CAUGHT LUCY IN A LIE
AND I TOOK A STAND, AND I LOST
HER.
NOW, I'D HATE TO SEE THAT HAPPEN
TO YOU.
ALL RIGHT.
LET'S ASSUME THE WORST --
THAT FELICIA SLEPT WITH SPENCER.
WHAT IF IT WAS SOMETHING THAT
YOU COULD FORGIVE ONCE YOU HEARD
HER SIDE OF THINGS?
DON'T YOU THINK YOU OWE
HER THE CHANCE TO EXPLAIN?
BUT MORE IMPORTANT,
DON'T YOU OWE THAT TO YOURSELF?
MAC: I -- I CONFRONTED HER
ON THE PHONE BEFORE YOU GOT
HERE.
SHE DIDN'T DENY BEING
WITH SPENCER.
AND WHEN I ASKED HER
TO COME HOME --
WHEN I TOLD HER THAT HER GIRLS
NEEDED HER, THAT I NEEDED HER,
YOU KNOW WHAT SHE SAID, KEVIN?
SHE SAID NO.
AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED,
THAT'S ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE
SAID.
IT'S DONE.
KEVIN: I'M SORRY, MY FRIEND.
MAC: SO AM I.

FELICIA: BOY, OH, BOY.
NOT ONLY HAVE YOU GOT COMPUTER
SKILLS, YOU'VE GOT COMPUTER
PASSION.
LUKE: I'M JUST NOT GETTING
ANYWHERE WITH THIS.
STEFAN'S HAD BUSINESS DEALINGS
IN EVERY COUNTRY YOU CAN NAME
AND HE'S LEFT A MONEY TRAIL ALL
THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD.
FELICIA: AND SO THERE'S
NO LEADS ON LUCKY?
LUKE: NO. IT'S LIKE A BIG
JIGSAW PUZZLE WITH PIECES
MISSING.
WHAT WE NEED IS THE INSIDE
TRACK.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
LAURA: HELLO?
LUKE: HI, DARLING, IT'S ME.
HOW YOU DOING?
LAURA: GOOD.
AND YOU?
LUKE: MISSING LULU.
LAURA: OH, WELL,
SHE'S SLEEPING.
I CAN WAKE HER UP IF --
LUKE: NO. THAT'S OK.
DON'T DO THAT.
I REALLY CALLED TO TALK TO YOU.
LAURA: ABOUT WHAT?
LUKE: WELL, LOOK, I'M WORKING
ON SOMETHING AND IT HAS TO DO
WITH SOMETHING HELENA'S UP TO,
AND I HAVE A FEELING THAT STEFAN
MIGHT KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
SO WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS
IF HE'S MADE ANY BUSINESS TRIPS
RECENTLY.
LOOK, LAURA, I KNOW THAT I'M
ASKING YOU TO STEP INTO
THE MIDDLE OF THIS THING,
BUT BELIEVE ME, IT'S IMPORTANT.
LAURA: HOW IMPORTANT?
LUKE: WELL, I DON'T KNOW YET.
JUST, PLEASE, TRUST ME.
LAURA: NOVA SCOTIA.
HE LEFT TODAY.
LUKE: THANK YOU, ANGEL.

HELENA: WELL, STEFAN ACTED
A LITTLE ODD WITH ME.
BUT UNDERNEATH, HE WAS JUST --
HE WAS TOO CONFIDENT AND TOO
COCKY.
ANDREAS: DOES MADAM THINK
HE FOUND OUT ABOUT THE
SPENCER BOY?
HELENA: I DON'T KNOW HOW
HE COULD HAVE, BUT I CAN'T
AFFORD TO TAKE ANY CHANCES,
JUST IN CASE HE HAS.

FELICIA: ANY LUCK?
LUKE: STEFAN'S IN
NOVA SCOTIA.
AND THAT ADDRESS CAME UP EARLIER
IN THE RECORDS.
THERE IT IS.
MY MONEY SAYS THAT'S WHERE
LUCKY IS.

>> STAY TUNED FOR SCENES FROM
THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL."

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

LUKE: YOU'VE REALLY PUT IT
ALL ON THE LINE THIS TIME,
HAVEN'T YOU?

LAURA: LUKE AND FELICIA ARE
TOGETHER.

SONNY: YOU GET IN MY WAY,
YOU'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING
AT MORE TROUBLE THAN YOU CAN
HANDLE.

EMILY: I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT
CARLY IS PREGNANT WITH SONNY'S
CHILD.
HANNAH: WHAT DID YOU SAY?

CARLY: I NEED TO SEE YOU.
